WHO Surgical Safety Checklist

8/10/2016
 
The WHO Surgical Safety Checklist helps ensure that surgical teams can minimize the most common and avoidable risks endangering the lives and well-being of surgical patients.  The challenge a hospital faces once the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist has been implemented is getting staff to consistently use and complete all phases of the checklist, including the Sign-In, Time-Out, and Sign-Out.
